New-HardDisk is limited to 64 disks per VM even with PVSCSI Controllers

VMs with PVSCSI Controllers could have 256 disks, but the command Add-NewDisk limits it to 64 disks.

An workaround is to specify an disk controller with the parameter "-controller"


"New-HardDisk" should verify if the VM contoller is PVSCSI, to considerer the limit of 64 disks per controller.
